MBA Entrepreneurship Concentration


Jenkins MBA Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship and Technology Commercialization Concentration (TEC concentration) provides master’s and Ph.D. students from management and other disciplines across NC State the opportunity to engage in all stages of company formation and growth.

Supported by a network of entrepreneurs, investors, and service providers, you are challenged with starting the next generation of high growth ventures

This hands-on concentration pairs student teams with young firms dealing with the challenges of growth and competition. As the TEC program progresses, Jenkins MBA students collaborate with graduate students from other disciplines – including scientists, engineers, and designers – to build a real high-growth start-up business. This cross-functional collaboration produces well-equipped managers with a comprehensive view of an organization and its players. Simply put, we train tomorrow’s business leaders.

Since 1995, the entrepreneurship concentration has raised more than $140 million in funding for our start-up partners. New ventures created through the program have produced more than 250 new jobs. This highly diverse and collaborative model has been adopted by scholars, companies, and entrepreneurs all over the world.
